important. others will tell you one tiny story. when i was 15 years old and i went to my high school, and my father had just gone to prison over the weekend, he had been convicted over the weekend, and i went to school on monday, like it was a regular monday. i'm not trying to be funny or flippant. it was just not that big of a deal. all right? so i went to school and my guidance counselor, who was the most well-meaning guy around came up to me and had these sad eyes. and he said well, we saw was in the newspaper and we just think it is awful. and i said oh, it's not so bad. and he said, well, we were thinking, given the extraordinary circumstances that happen, you should not have come to school all day. and i said, you know what? it was kind of bad. [laughter] and he said yes, we have this new program. you can come to school at 8:00 o'clock and go home at noon.
